Evaluation of viability and subsequent developmental ability of mouse germinal vesicle breakdown oocytes vitrified in conventional straws. Oocytes with compact cumulus cells were cultured for 3 h in TCM199 medium GVBD and vitrified by two methods: the step-wise and single-step. After vitrification, the oocytes were thawed, and subjected to in vitro(More)
OBJECTIVE The existence of female germ-line stem cells (FGSCs) has been the subject of a wide range of recent studies. Successful isolation and culture of FGSCs could facilitate studies on regenerative medicine and infertility treatments in the near future. Our aim in the present study was evaluation of the most commonly used techniques in enrichment of(More)
Human dermal fibroblasts (HDFs) are a potential source of somatic cells for genetic manipulation and tissue engineering. Confirmation of cytogenetic stability of these cells is an essential step for cell nuclear transfer and generation of a suitable and functional induced pluripotent stem cells line. HDF cells were isolated and cultured from human foreskin(More)

The efficient induction of embryonic stem cells into hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) requires understanding the pro or inhibitory regulatory networks, which are involved in these pathways. Transforming growth factor β family is a super family of growth factors such as TGF-β1, TGF-β2, TGF-β3, and some other cytokines. Previous works indicate that some of(More)
We have recently reported that antioxidant supplements enhance the efficacy of cryopreserved spermatogonial stem cells. Melatonin is considered a free radical scavenger which has direct and indirect antioxidant effects in in vitro and in vivo microenvironments. Due to the anti-apoptotic properties of melatonin, researchers have proposed that melatonin may(More)
